DIY Easy Cake Stands

Looking for a fun and simple way to display your cake, cupcakes, food, cookies, or just about anything? This simple project takes 3 steps! Yes, three steps and you have a fabulous cake stand!

What you will need:

  • Candlestick holder - Any kind, any color. I used a brass bass candle stick holder.
  • Top - I used a lightweight metal dessert tray from Dollar Tree.
  • Gorilla Glue or other industry strength heavy duty glue.
  • Spray paint - I use Rustoleum Painters touch for indoor/outdoor.
  • Optional - Sealer if you choose to place food directly onto tray or doilies, fabric, plate or tray to place food on.

Here is how to make it:

1. Place glue around the rim of the candle stick. Make sure its a good, thick band. Too thin will not hold as well.

2. Place the top you will be using directly onto the candlestick holder. Place a large object in the center to adhear the glue and let dry over night or at least several hours.

Once dry, paint and let dry. I would recommend to allow to fully dry overnight before using.

That's it!!!! Simple and fabulous!!!!!
